Within the the EU QT-Flagship, the OpenSuperQ consortium will build a cloud-based superconducting quantum computer. As part of this effort, we are currently seeking a Postdoc in Computational Quantum Chemistry, who will work in the Chalmers team modelling physical systems on quantum computers. The aim is to develop algorithms for calculating the electronic structure and energy surfaces of molecules of relevance to prebiotic chemistry, beginning with water and hydrogen cyanide, and to run them on the available simulated and physical quantum hardware. The calculations will benchmark quantum computers and provide tests of quantum advantage and quantum superiority.

Deadline for the application is January 31.

  • Are you interested  in joining the group as a PhD student? One way currently is to apply for the Excellence PhD student positions within Excellence Initiative Nano at Chalmers.
  • Bachelor and master students interested in pursuing their thesis in the group are welcome to contact Martin Rahm (martin.rahm[at] for discussion. We have several exciting  projects lined up along the topics of prebiotic chemistry, chemical bonding analysis, reactivity prediction and computational material search and design.
